The games industry job portal Games-Career.com Now Available in Spanish

Hamburg, 14 August 2013: ¡Olé! The Spanish language version of the job portal Games-Career.com ( www.games-career.com ) is now online. Since its launch in 2011, Games-Career.com has become the prime recruitment platform for the digital games sector in Germany. Now the portal expands its services to Spain and South America. Spain, in particular, boasts a reservoir of highly qualified IT specialists who are looking for employment internationally. Games companies can now publish their job openings in German, English and Spanish, allowing them to reach an even greater number of potential candidates. Spanish-speaking applicants can post job requests free of charge.

Games firms recruit worldwide, not least because there is such a high demand for expert personnel. The Spanish version of Games-Career.com enables companies to address native speakers and thus extends the reach of the job listings considerably.

As Achim Quinke, Managing Director of Quinke Networks and provider of Games-Career.com, explains: “The high unemployment rate in their home country makes Spanish applicants an especially interesting group of candidates for foreign companies. Games-Career.com helps both sides to find the best match more rapidly and effectively. We also see a definite potential in the medium term to actively support job-seekers and companies from South America.”

Launched in August 2011 in its German version as a specialized job search and recruitment engine for the games industry, Games-Career.com swiftly established itself as the foremost resource for job providers and -seekers. The English language version followed in July 2012. The price per individual job listing is 95 EUR (plus 19% VAT), which includes the option to publish the offer in German, English and Spanish or any combination thereof with no additional charge. Offers are listed for a period of eight weeks. Games companies seeking personnel in greater numbers can book a “Job Flat Rate” for 395 EUR per month, allowing them to publish an unlimited number of job offers.
